We really enjoyed our stay here (two nights over the space of a week). The hostess was lovely and really made the place feel like an oldschool B&B. The day we arrived fibre optic internet had been installed and download speeds were excellent. We were able to download tv episodes with no problems. The bed was a little short/narrow for...

We arrived around 10 pm and still got a super warm welcome. The house is very nice as are the hosts. The breakfast was very delicious and there were options given vor everyone. The rooms were decorated in a lovely way.

This B&B is situated a 10 minute drive out of Fort William and easy to find. The house is large with very spacious bedrooms. They are dog friendly and a good location to exercise the dogs. We were made very welcome on our overnight stay and would use this place again.

Morag was very friendly and welcoming. The room was a double twin and had a wash basin and also had a built in warbrobe. The shared bathroom also wasn't a problem. Parking was fine and plenty of spaces available at the time. Finally, breakfast was great and lots to choose from. Would recommend.

We stayed in the en-suite at the back of the house overlooking the garden. A large room, decorated in a modern, clean and comfortable style. Our hostess was a lovely homely lady who provides good facilities and more than generous supply of tea/coffee supplies. The accommodation is some 10 minutes (depending on traffic volume) away from the town but this...

Located in a small village a few miles outside Fort William it’s a good location to escape the hustle and bussle of the town, which can be overpowering. The welcome from Morag was friendly and the room very large and spacious. Our room had a mountain view, although the view was obscured by low cloud most of the time –...

We stayed for 2 nights. It was very nice n cosy. The place is very clean, owner is very friendly. Breakfast was great and there was a great variety. As we need to leave for Oban early, the owner was kind to wake up earlier to prepare breakfast for us. Very kind of her... would highly recommend this place..
